So I got a supercontainer on the PTS and lo-and-behold, the very ship I was saving up dubs for on the live server

I don't suppose this ship will cross over onto my main account and I will be a very happy sailor? (Please say yes)

Also this is the first time a supercontainer has ever dropped a ship for me, and of course on the PTS.

I wasn't aware pulling a premium ship from a crate on PTS was even possible.

@Hapa_Fodder can we make his wish come true? Or at the very least find a way for him to retain it in the PTS? Anything else seems like a cruel joke on the part of fate.

I had this happen with Exeter.

You'll have access to the ship on the PTS for maybe a few patches, then they'll reset and it will be gone.  

No chance you get it on the Live server.

What ever you open on the PTS does NOT cross to a live account.

As for getting super containers on PTS, I mean, it's a game client so all the chances to get STs etc are the same.

This is exactly why I DON'T play on the PTS.  My last day of PTS play was the day I scored a supercontainer with 14 days of premium time and realized it was worthless.

You are testing their product while your main account languishes and then BAM, joke's on you.  

Pretty cruel joke.  :Smile_sceptic:

Sorry you don't get your Massachusetts.  :Smile_sad:

This happened to me sometime late last year. Rolled Gascogne in a supercontainer on the PTS. I figured it wouldn't transfer to my main account, but it also gets erased from your PTS account at the start of the next season when your main account is mirrored to the PTS again.

At the very least it shouldn't delete from your PTS account, it should be a thing that rolls over when your PTS fleet otherwise resets.   

Would give an extra thing for PTS to keep players coming back.

It would be nice, but on the whole I'd rather have my main account mirrored quarterly than keep any ships from PTS supercontainers. I cheese the PTS missions in Thunderer, Smolensk, Friesland, and Benham with 19-point captains, and I'd much rather be able to continue doing so than play the Gas Can at all.

To be clear, I meant that any premium ships you pick up on PTS should stick around, even though the Live account gets mirrored onto your PTS account every quarter.

That would be nice. They can put it in the queue for changes to make for the PTS after "Take PTS player feedback into account" and "Let PTS players use the ships being released," LOL.
